[movies]Solar Flare Aimed at Earth : Image of the Day - NASA -- Image courtesy SOHO Extreme ultaviolet Imaging Telescope, ESA/NASA
At the height of the solar cycle, the Sun is finally displaying some fireworks. This image from the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) shows a large solar flare from June 6, 2000 at 1424 Universal Time (10:24 AM Eastern Daylight Savings Time). Associated with the flare was a coronal mass ejection that sent a wave of fast moving charged particles straight towards Earth. (The image was acquired by the Extreme ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (EIT), one of 12 instruments aboard SOHO) Solar acti...

[movies]Solar Flare Aimed at Earth : Image of the Day - NASA -- Courtesy of SOHO/LASCO, SOHO/EIT, and SOHO/MDI consortium. SOHO is a project of international cooperation between ESA and NASA.
At 10:40 UTC on September 24, 2001, a large solar flare erupted from the surface of the sun. Pointed almost directly towards the Earth, the flare caused a coronal mass ejection (CME). Coronal mass ejections are composed of fast-moving clouds of ionized gas. These energetic particles can interfere with wireless communications, damage satellites, disrupt the transmission of electricity, and energize the Earth's upper atmosphere, causing auroras...
